1 Dead After Tractor-Trailer Overturns On NJ Turnpike

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. -

One person is dead and another is hurt after a crash involving an overturned tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike in Burlington County.

It happened at 2 a.m. Wednesday near exit five in Mount Holly.

State police say the passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver is in the hospital for minor injuries.

The right and center lanes were still closed at 6 a.m. Traffic is using the left lane and the shoulder to get by, but you'd be better off taking southbound Interstate 295.

FOX 29 has a crew headed to the scene and will have live reports for the rest of the morning.
